Autism Entrepreneurs Center Kicks Off With Overflow First Meeting
An enthusiastic group of 30 parents and young adults with autism or Aspergers filled the Autism Center of S. Nevada main room on Jan. 10th to kick off the Autism Entrepreneurs Center's mission to provide the specific guidance, tools and resources these young adults and their families need to create, launch and run their own businesses.

In attendance was someone who wants to be an accountant, two who want to do work in computers and technical problem-solving, one who wants to be a physical therapist, another who wants to work in the fire alarm business.

Next steps are to: 
  1. Set a regular schedule for meetings which will include both a weekday session and weekend session 
  2. Find a larger space in which we can establish a residency for the Center
  3. Raise funds to support our efforts
